As ever, the main stage is hosted by the Eastern Electrics clan and the EE team keep it strictly banging. Last year saw a surprise Tuskegee B2B with Seth Troxler and The Martinez Brothers, under the glorious British summertime sunshine - so expect international headliners spinning records all day long. The industrial Switchyard stage will be curated by Knee Deep in Sound, the party created by house mainstay Hot Since 82, bringing an all star cast of prized DJs to soundtrack this special stage. Eastern Electrics family member Skream (remember when he DJ-ed on the back of a rickshaw round Oxford Street?) heads The Bigger Top with a whole clan of favourites, for a Skreamizm takeover, representing darker shades of house and techno. Keep eyes peeled for details on talent coming very soon.
Ibiza mainstays Viva Warriors make a welcome return to the Club Stage, bringing through both residents and very specials guests, plus London house music heroesDefected Records add up-tempo, feel good jams to keep hands in the air from the off. Purveyors of the finest in garage, grime and bass flavours will join on the The Star of EEarena, where London's finest Rinse FM are running things, bringing a different flavour to the day's proceedings. And of course, who could forget the Tropical Tea Party, the hidden gem arena where cocktails, live bands, and much much more can be found. You're in for a treat here. This year's VIP is brought to you by Jocks & Nerds, who will take the lucky few VIP ticket holders on a journey through five decades of dance music with some of the most iconic selectors in the game. Extra love for the sixth Eastern Electrics edition comes from media partners Be-At TV and Ministry of Sound, both much-loved brands in the electronic music community.
On top of the world class line-up, expect the usual debauchery, with secret stages waiting to be explored, tropical cocktails, and a host of extra-curricular activities to make every Eastern Electrics experience sicker than your average. With headliners, artists and surprises all still to come very soon, keep eyes peeled for announcements
